This week's Tip of the Week is an absolute gem. Park Bench Society are three 16 year old lads from Loughborough who specialise in charming acoustic indie music full of ear-catching percussion.

Room No. 66 was first played by Dean Jackson on his BBC Introducing show The Beat in September 2011 and the band were quickly ordered in for a session. It's subsequently been shown some love by Tom Robinson, Steve Lamacq and Huw Stephens.

The band have admitted they have a soft spot for ska and that's noticeable in singer Murray's soft playful vocal and a haunting trumpet signature on this track. Make sure you listen more than once - you'll hear something new each time.

Find the band on Facebook and let us know what you make of Room No. 66 below.
